Fried Spinach Tofu – 炸苋菜豆腐

Master the tricky art of making tofu in a handful of minutes! This protein rich food can be made just by steaming a simple mixture of eggs and soy milk. To get that delightful hint of greens, adding chopped spinach to the mixture will do the trick.

Once your tofu mixture has steamed to firmness, draining is one simple trick to getting that chewy, flavourful texture. Like a sponge, after those little pockets are emptied of every last droplet of water, they easily absorb any flavour they are left in.

Get all that tender texture packaged in crisp crust with Knife Rice Bran Oil. With a mild nutty taste, it’s ideal for stir frying without overpowering other flavours. A relatively new variety of vegetable oil obtained from the hard outer coating of rice grains, Rice Bran Oil lends its wide spectrum of antioxidant properties and health benefits to the Gamma Oryzanol content found in rice bran itself.

Coupled with springy mushrooms, enjoy that seductively satisfying crunch drenched in rich savoury sauce in the comfort of your home – another great side dish you can add to your dinner table.
